Electrical Devices vs. Electronics Devices
What are Electrical Devices?
Electrical circuits don’t have the ability to make decisions. Electrical appliances are mostly large and deal with high current and voltage. Electrical devices use the purely passive components (Components that don’t require external supply for their operation) for their working. Motors run on 11 kV or more. Generators produces 100 KW or more. Mostly operate in AC. Generators, large transformers, heavy motors are electrical devices. Resistance is a passive component and is used in electrical devices as it don’t require external supply for its operation.
What are Electronics Devices?
Electronics circuits have the decision making ability. Electronic appliances are mostly small and deal with low voltage and current. Electronic Devices work with at least one active component (Components that require external supply for their operation). Mostly operate on 3-12 DC. Cell phones, laptops, radio and microwave oven are electronic devices. Diodes and transistors are active components and used in the electronic devices that require some volts to be functional while placed in the circuit normally 0.3 volts to 0.7 volts.
